>What the fuck is this?
MechWarrior: Living Legends is an overhaul mod for Crysis that was the successor to the then dead MechWarrior series before MechWarrior 5 was released. In addition to piloting mechs, you can drive a number of both land and air vehicles as well as exit them and move about in an armored suit.
>Sounds sick. How can I play?
You can find the latest installer on their website, which will come with everything that you need.
>Can my computer run it?
If you have anything that was built in the last decade, probably, but that doesn't mean you should expect performance drops since it is CryEngine. Autodetect settings should be enough, but if issues persist, check out the wiki.
>When's the server going up?
While I have experimented with a test server, I wouldn't be able to keep it up for the duration of the gamenight. There are a plethora of public server options anyways and the regular players, though few, may appreciate a temporary uptick. I can put up a temporary server if need be, though.
>Why are you posting this Wednesday?
It's a 10gb download, and even if you already have it installed you should make sure that it's updated, which can be done via launcher. There are some performance and control configurations (including joystick support) you will want to get familiar or set up beforehand.

If it comes down to it I can set up a server for at least some of the time, but apparently last time this was played a public server was used. I'm not familiar with the community, so if they're pricks then I'll try my best.

I'm not trying to be a fag but if you can't do it the whole time then its probably best to hold off. As much as I want to play it would just be better if we had our own room instead of tiptoeing around the regulars.

I should mention that a key reason why it'll be troublesome for me is that I most likely will be unavailable during my afternoon, meaning that the Euro will suffer. I could probably keep it up maybe seven hours per day at most during the evening on the East Coast or instruct a volunteer on how to set up a dedicated server, which really isn't that challenging.

You both type like fags and your shit's all retarded. I shouldn't have to remind you that, as a rule, we leave one place because it's unbearable. If people stay after it becomes unbearable, then they likely enable or perpetuate whatever terrible conditions made us leave. There's no "war". There is isolation, one might even call it quarantine. The less contact made with the infected the longer this place will hold out. Both of you retards probably don't get that because you're the modern-day equivalent of plague-ridden rats.

Test server will go up today at around 5pm EST so I can make sure everything works and so you can fuck around and learn how to play. Unlimited money will be turned on.

I will host when I can so you whiny bastards don’t bicker, but I can’t do it constantly and it’ll be unfair to anons in the European timezone unless they stay up late. I can only do it in the evenings, you’re just going to have to deal with it when I can’t by either joining one of the many empty 24/7 servers like any person would or just do it yourself. I’m still waiting on someone I know who probably could do it for the entire weekend, but I don’t know yet.

To my surprise, there actually seems to be a decent amount of people who still play so a server may fill up. So, if that’s the case, I’ll put a password on when anon population is high and open it when it’s low and just kick any no-fun regular.

Used to love this game but the devs are a bunch of niggers who keep nerfing mechs and buffing aircraft and otherwise ruining all my favorite variants. But since they make content most of the community sucks their dicks so I just stopped playing. 

If you guys want to piss off the tightwads amongst the regulars go onto the 12th VR server if it's still up (or any of the servers that's populated really) and name yourselves easily recognisable, milquetoast right-wing names, DonaldTrump4moreyears, Kyle Rittenhouse, etc, I hear they recently banned someone on their discord for "glorifying a murderer" when someone joined with the latter of those names.

>Using discord for a crysis mod
I expected that the only kind of person who still plays crysis and it's mods to be more like us, not a faggot discord user who cries about raycissm. 
I wasn't even planning on playing in this gamenight because I never liked mechs but now I will. Let's piss them off as much as possible. 

Is there teamkilling in this game? Would it even easier to grief these faggots. But we'll need a way to identify anons from the faggy regulars. Perhaps use clan tags? We could use this opportunity to fly the WWEW banner again.
Replies: >>20406
Some people are worse than others but the discord is known to be particularly cancerous (I never went there I don't use discord but I hear about what happens there). The discord seriously destroyed the MWLL community because everyone started hiding among their own little groups and the community is really split and adversarial now.

There's also a few tranny simps in the community that get buttmad when you make fun of trannies.

>is there team killing?
Yes, the absolute worst (best) way to teamkill someone is to take off one of their legs then not kill them. It won't leave any log that you "TK'd" them, and it ruins them financially usually because when you die, there's a minimum amount of money you will spawn with denoted by your score, so if you just make it so they don't die, and they can't sell their asset (because they can't return to a garage) they are usually stuck with no money and must either go buy a really cheap asset, or just get themselves killed so they can afford another one.

If they get so assblasted to the point they need to go cry in their faggy little discord channels for bans, then we won. We farmed salt and got our screencaps. We'll then just play in OP's server, see >>20347
>as if more than 3 anons will show
Can't know until we try. Also 3 anons are more than enough to shit all over the discucks' little server. 

Now stop bitching and download the game.
This game is primarily mechs, but there are other types of vehicles.

I'm going to put up the test server a little early so people can get accustomed to the controls. It should be an Internet game obviously named. Unlimited money will be enabled, you just have to press the "Home" key on your keyboard.

 Password is copper.
I got enough toaster for this now I think, will download tonight.
Server will be up while I eat. Everything seems nominal. I've only played MW4 before which I may do in the future if anyone struggles with running this game so if there's anything you want me to add into the map rotation let me know because I wouldn't know.

I'm also going to emphasize that you should really try to get your joystick set up if you have one.

C-bills seem to be fixed for now, but for whatever reason tickets are going up instead of down. I'm going to try to fix that. Also, there are 8 people online at the moment.
Replies: >>20635
Ticket issue is score-based because the default setting for team tickets is individual to each map for some reason. If the server actually updated, then it should be fixed in the next map. There is a master server config file that does seem to have default values set, but for whatever reason when launching the dedicated server it doesn't read from it.
(15KB, 460x466)
Everything seems a-ok now. All the server-side issues have been resolved. So far the peak today was 11 players. If there's anything that you may be confused about, I really recommend reading the wiki because this isn't the sort of game you just drop in and learn. I'm going to go eat now.

If you're not bothering to read the thread, the server is named GAMENIGHT and the password is WEDIGGIANTROBOTS and that's with two g's because I noticed a couple of failed authentication attempts in my console.

Server shut down for the night. I'm going to test a server out to try to iron out some of the kinks and set up a good rotation. The plan is to reduce a good chunk of the TC maps to 30-45 minutes for majority of the maps and a couple quick 7 minute death matches every few games to break it up. Saturday will be all private, and Sunday I'll open it up to the public so we get a chance to annoy them. We'll probably get overflow for when the Vegan server fills up and then I'll do a big game then.

Thanks for playing and helping me work out the issues. For whatever reason I'm getting the strangest sense of deja-vu typing this.
thank you for hosting, I am not good at the game but driving tanks around was fun.
Sorry anon I had a thing to attend but I really want to play hard tomorrow.
I should mention just as I did in the other threads that I'm going to get the server up at 12PM EST tomorrow and Sunday and arbitrarily turn it off. 

For anyone who does play, tell me if there are any maps that you want to see added or removed and in what gamemode if there's any overlap. No TSA though. I'm definitely going to remove Marshes and that volcano one which I think was called Inferno.

Then they complained in the game chat about it. Also, Sir Edmund Hillary was a crossdresser for some reason.

Replies: >>20812 >>20838
The gameplay is fine. It's just something that you're unfamiliar with because it's an overlooked genre. You can read the manuals if you want to be better, but don't dismiss it just because of the big skillgap there is between new and experienced players.
Also, we have ten players on at the moment. I'm also going to remove all SA maps even though I put them in for brief periods because that kills interest.

Game always works better with more people, can rely on less skilled people to act as meat shields and more opportunity to pick off wounded stragglers. Low pop always devolves into 1v1's (or worse) where asset selection and mastery of said asset means skilled players walk all over newbs.
This is why I said to go public servers from the start, can do lots of support roles with more players.
Yeah, then C3 assets come into play and backcapping points can easily earn you ranks without being a good shot

Gamenight is over. We peaked at 29 players at the very end and somehow my poor little i5 4690k managed to hold up better than these dual Xeon dedicated servers. It was pretty fun. I never played before or hosted it, so thanks for sticking it out with the mistakes in Friday and Saturday's rotation.

I'm sorry for those who didn't enjoy it as much, but it really did get a lot better with a high population and team fighting. Looking back at the OP, I should have stressed that this is something you need to read about and experiment with. I'll try to be more considerate in the future, but my next gamenight, if I do another gamenight, will be either Total Annihilation or Supreme Commander or SWAT 3 if I can get that bitch to work. I'm awful at RTS, but I will try to help people who are new out if they're not so overwhelmed so long as they're willing to learn.

For those who did enjoy it, I'm happy you did and thank you for playing. Cheers.

Yeah, I was just concerned from the initial responses that there would be no interest in playing had I not hosted. I don't think I will personally host this again for any future gamenight because there are public servers.  I'll get another host to do it if we ever get enough anons for a private server.

I request that when this thread is unstickied that it isn't bumplocked because I may do some private games semi-regularly with just a handful of folks, and if you're one of those who felt defeated but want to give the game more of chance you'll get an opportunity to in one one of these matches.
